"This new anthology contains fiction, memoirs, essays, and poetry from twenty-eight writers who span more than 150 years. When read together, these explorations offer an astonishingly incisive collective portrait of the ""other Jews,"" Sephardim who long for la España perdida, their lost ancestral home, even as they create a vibrant, multifaceted literary tradition in exile.
